What you'll do

This walking tour is a hands-on experience, an opportunity to connect with community insiders who are eager, not only to share their knowledge of customs and traditions with you but to show you the positive light and mindset that informs and energizes our way of life today. Simply put, it is an experience you will not soon forget. For those of you with Jewish heritage, especially if you have never been to the area, it is an absolute must.

Mechy

Hi, I'm Mechy. Born and raised in the Hasidic community in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. I know the people, the places, and the heart of this community and can take you places nobody else can, giving you an up-close-and-personal insider’s view of what life is like the Hasidic community. The architecture, the synagogues, and the Jewish way of life are so rich in tradition, but so few outside our close family and friends get to experience it. I am passionate about my culture and the rich history behind it, and I want to share it with you.
